Thanks man, your probably right. I'll just have to wait a while before I hit any trails. I saw your vid, yours sounds good. Glad you had the chance to drive it.

Got the rear flares on



I need 3 more of these little plastic nut things that hold the flares on. Anyone have any extras laying around? I can send $$ thru paypal, thx.

Got a used washer bottle and a used overflow tank from a couple JF members here. Just have to hook up the washer hose to the nozzles.



Also got some 4 wheel disc brakes and 5 lug bullitt wheel conversion on my brother's Stang.

Awesome progress!
I wish I has some left over flare pieces...I would send you the plastic pieces.
That BBK intake - I have read where a lot of guys have had sealing problems and that its designed to add more power in the upper RPM,
It's an expensive part...if it were me I would sell it and get a Explorer GT 40 /Cobra/Edelbrock Performer and add some better heads.... or trade it for a Tubular GT 40 out of a Lightening....(how cool would that look)

Thanks Ben, you guys have been a big help with all the little odds and ends needed. I got the overflow bottle from Keith460.

Thanks yea my brother got that intake for his Stang but I don't think he's going to use it b/c of those fuel leak issues. He already has a Cobra intake with GT40 heads. I agree the GT40 Lightning intake would look awesome.

Drove it up and down driveway. Clutch feels good in all gears, power steering a little whiny, gotta check fluid again but it works good. Brakes are still spongy, need some more bleeding. This Jeep hasn't moved under its own power in almost 2yrs. I can't believe how much louder and ballsy it sounds compared to my old 258.

Welcome to the world of Ford power steering pumps (ear plugs are available at the door). I put up with that noise for 10 years (new pumps last 6 months if your lucky before they start to whine). They're just not upto the forces that big tires and CJ steering require. I finally got tired of people giving me the stink-eye in parking lots so I swapped in a Saginaw pump. Here is the mounting bracket I used for the conversion;

Thanks for the info and link. Did you have to buy their pump too or can you use any Saginaw pump with a serpentine pulley?

Just about wrapping up the paint work. Still need to do the other door, but I want to keep it together so I know how to assemble this one.

Oh by the way, my son has that 347 running in his Mustang. Much faster than my little 302.

Most any Sag pump from a truck will work, just make sure the reservoir is clocked as far toward the driver side as possible. I used a rebuilt pump for a 91 Blazer 350 (Cardone Part # 20-7940F)and a new serpentine pulley (Dorman Part # 300-020). Way cheaper than buying new pump from WH (and a lifetime warranty).

I chased that unicorn for a while and gave up. The bracket is no longer available from Ford, and I looked for one in the salvage yard but was never able to find one (saw dozens with the A/C mount, but none without).
Maybe easier to find in other parts of the country... Also, not entirely sure this will work with the pulley system for a Mustang motor (as I understand it, the belt to engine spacing is different on a Mustang than on other Ford 5.0 motors).
